Rev. Tim Yau
Community Pioneer

Prior to arriving in Cringleford in Spring 2017, Tim was a Community Pioneer Minister in Ipswich and across the Eastern region for the United Reform Church, and prior to that was living and working in an area of new housing just outside Peterborough. Before training to be a priest he was a youth worker and a nurse, but probably his most unusual job was being a crisp taster on night-shifts.


Tim grew up under the shadow of the flame towers of the oil refineries in North East Lincolnshire. Being of mixed-ethnicity he never felt that he fitted in a majority white working-class industrial town. At fifteen years old he became a Christian and for the first time in his life he felt that he belonged.

Tim is married to Deborah and has three kids. To his children’s delight, he is a Star Wars geek and still dreams of becoming a Super Hero. As a family, the Yaus are dedicated to promoting 'love thy neighbour' and ;living well and loving our community' in Roundhouse Park, and exploring the culture of Cringleford, discovering God’s future for the community and having lots of fun on the way.

Tim is also a Mission Enabler for Norfolk.

Rev. Graham Wilkins


Rector at  St Peter's and Colney Churches.

 Before becoming a minister Graham was an Industrial Chemist and still retains a great love of science. In free time he loves reading and sport – although supporting Derby Country he might have to keep quiet round here! With the Hub he looks forward to building a loving and active community spirit in Cringleford, and looks forward to meeting as many people as possible.

Rachel Dorling



Rachel first came to Norwich as a student at UEA and for the last 20 years has been living in Cringleford. She has 3 children who are away at University. She enjoys developing links between all the residents of Cringleford and helps to retains a strong relationship between St Peter's church and the Hub. Having recently stopped working full time, she is enjoying spending time exploring different art forms, e.g. sewing, crochet, painting, drawing etc.
